Hot Topic - Climate Action Activity

For many, climate change and the implication on the natural world are one of humanity’s most pressing concerns – in a recent survey 86% of adults and children put the climate crisis at the top of their list for what they wish to see meaningful action on. Professor Jules Pretty, current Chair of the Essex Climate Action Commission and Professor of Environment and Society at the University of Essex, has developed an engaging workshop to educate young learners on low-carbon living and provide practical tips on reducing our carbon footprint both at home and in school. He is also able to share some of his own extensive research and current evidence in the importance of tackling these critical issues.
